I've seen many photos over the years and this one is - to date - the best one I have ever seen, what amazing light and composition.

Wow, I must say that for such an often photographed subject, your picture still manages to convey a special feeling. Wonderful! Would you mind telling me about your trek up there? :)

Thank you for the kind compliment.  I'm pleased you liked the image. :)

The "trek" was part of a tour of Peru and we spent two days at MP.  We travelled from Cusco to Ollaytaytambo by coach then caught the train to Agua Calientes where we stayed in a very nice hotel.  We caught a bus to the historic site on the first day and had an excellent tour guide show us around the upper parts of the site before coming back down just before the site closed.  The next morning, we got up at about 04:30am to join the line for the first buses (I think our bus was 3rd or 4th in line), up to the site to watch the sunrise from MP. 

To be honest the sunrise was a bit of a disappointment, but the lack of people at the site made it worth getting up for.

That sounds fun! I was thinking about going some years ago, but they shut the entire trail down due to mud slides. It would be fun to see, but I fear it might be a kind of an anticlimax as well. Walking the trail sounds fun when you're in the right mood, it might not be so much fun several days in a row. :D
